Ooooo it's Friday the 13th!! Scary. Time for an oldie, will you join me?

Hello and how are you this Friday?
Where has the week gone?
I've had a busy couple of days catching up with the housework and enjoying the sunshine with the dog.  Our 45 minute walks seem to have turned into a couple of hours over the last few days, taking full advantage of the beautiful weather.
No crafting for me.  Boo!
Hubby has been away this week with work and is home later.  When I have the mum and dad roles to cover my time seems to just disappear.  My youngest appears to have caught a bit of a head cold this week and my eldest has had his Biology and Maths higher examinations.
Combining that with work and all the usual daily chores my time has just flown by this week.
As for this weekend it is usually my weekend off work but there is a special tasting event in store, so I am in tomorrow as extra, on the shop floor.  Gulp!  Watch out customers!
Then on Sunday I have my local crop again and the boys are planning a little airsoft fun and games.
It's going to be another busy one.

Back to today and in honour of Friday the 13th I thought I'd share something a little spooky.
Sharing an oldie each Friday is all about re sharing and old crafty project that you have already blogged before.  Whether to showcase previous styles or other crafts, the idea behind this process is to show your creative journey to those who maybe haven't been with you from the start.
It is also fun to see how styles have changed or hobbies.  I would love it if you join me, please link below and I will visit you all.
Here's my oldie today with a bit of a CAS theme.

The papers are Harley Davidson by EK Success, the skull and crossbows are from my Cricut.
The sentiment is a wee metal tag "Age means nothing" I can't remember who made these, can you?
I have added stitching detail on my machine.
This was a birthday card for my Dad about six years ago, I wanted to incorporate a biker theme without using a bike, if you get my drift?

Do you have anything excited planned over the weekend?  I hope so.
That's all from me today, have a super weekend.
To those of you who do join me today, thank you in advance, I do love to visit your blogs and see what oldie you have picked too.  Have a great weekend and more from me tomorrow.

I'm afraid we don't have picture links today, still trying to sort out my subscription with no joys.
Oh to be a techno whiz!

Hi Erika, super Oldie from you, love the image it conjours up Pirates for me and I've been watching Black Sails on Amazon, love a swashbuckle I do.
Any way I've managed to play this week, but I couldn't put a photo up just my name.
Have a good weekend, and you are quite right to take advantage of the lovely weather with Holly, Kate x

Love your spooky oldie Erika. It's great fun and sure your Dad loved it. That skull is great.

It sounds as you're having a busy time. Enjoy work tomorrow. I had an exciting week last week so a nice quiet weekend ahead for me watching the play offs. Enjoy yours. Barbxx
